Free Printable Valentines

With Valentine’s Day falling during the Winter Games this year, I thought it would be cute to come up with an Olympics-themed Valentine. But what can I say? My son is more crafty than athletic (Gee, wonder where he gets that …) and he decided he’d rather make his classmates rubber band bracelets instead. But I developed my Olympics idea anyway, and wrote about both ideas for my latest AP craft story. You can read it HERE, but know that news links often expire quickly, so if the link doesn’t work, just google my name and valentines.




Parker was happy to eat the chocolate  “gold medal” I used for this photo, but he was determined to stick with the bracelet idea, and has made about 15 so far. He has informed however, that he will not be writing “LOVE, Parker” on any of the cards.

    Your calendar on your website is not correct. It’s freaking me out. I still have a few more days to make Valentines, right?

  • Holly

    Juli, I’m not sure what you mean. The calendar that shows up on the left side of this page? It shows Feb. 14 on Friday, which is correct.

  • Juli Trumbo

    You are correct. I am not use to seeing a calendar that has Saturday and Sunday on one side of the calendar. My mistake.

    Hi love your valentines. I’ve been trying to print and I recall last year I had trouble printing your lego valentines- any suggestion for me. If I can resolve the printing issue….any chance you could make or show me how to change the english words to french “Tu as un coeur d’ or” . I have a kiddo in french immersion. Thanks a bunch

  • Hey Holly, thanx for the great idea. I had chocolate coins at home and searched for an idea and loved yours… I can’t attach pic, or would have sent it to you.. Loved making it with kids. Thnx

  • These are great valentines! We went with the easy store-bought ones this year, but I would love to do something like this for next year.
